PhD Research Project

Character and Citizenship Education


School of Education
Prof J Arthur
Applications accepted all year round
Self-Funded PhD Students Only

This research project revolves around the origins of character formation in school children and the aspirations and character formation of young people in deprived areas. This research can include issues surrounding character development and looking at the future-mindedness of young people, and how it can be developed using social media. At the School of Education our ground breaking research and evaluation of education is used to inform policy-makers, assist practitioners and enhance opportunities for all learners. The work from this project has the potential to be fed directly into policy decision making at national government level.
